vs Portsmouth and Southsea 3s - 10 Mar 2018
Home Score: 7 - Opposition Score: 0
Match Result: Win
After not playing a few weeks due to cancellation from the snow, the ladies 4's were rarring to go.
With Portsmouth and Southsea only have 10 players, we took full advantage of this and scored within the first 10 minutes, with another goal shortly after. Portsmouth didn't stand a chance and our goal keeper Annabelle did not touch the ball throughout the whole game. The defence did a great job of not letting Portsmouth through.
Just before half time, Haslemere was awarded a penalty flick from a handball in the D, which saw Ness score with ease. By half time were were 5-0 up.
The second half saw a very tired Portsmouth try a bit harder after a team talk, but still they couldn't get passed the half way line. Haslemere lost their shape a bit and slowed down to Portsmouths pace, but still managed to put 2 more goals in the back of the net.
Man of Match: Joey Hendry
vs Aldershot and Farnham 5s - 27 Jan 2018
Home Score: 3 - Opposition Score: 3
Match Result: Draw
With 20 players available it was hard to pick a team this week. We were playing a team second from bottom on the league table, but diidn't want to chance anything as we are going for promotion this season. Thank goodness we had a strong team, as we found this to be our toughest game yet against a very different side to the last time we played them.
Aldershot had a lot of fast young players which caught us on the hop a few times in defence, for which we conceded two goals within the first 20 minutes. Then 5 minutes later they score another goal from a deflection off a short corner. We came back just before the half time whistle with a goal from Sally from a deflection.
After having a good chat with Heidi Wells who we had as a coach on the side for this game, we came back a lot stronger and were determined to get back in the game. The defence kept Aldershot out of our D and the mid field worked tirelessly to defend and attack.
After 5 minutes Ness scored another goal from a break away. The game was very tense and everyone gave it their all and we kept on fighting and with 4 minutes to go Sally scored another goal from a deflection. The atmosphere was amazing with lots of supporters on the side, we were on fire and happy with a draw after such a tough game.
Man of match: Sally and Joey Hendry, as it was mum and daughter they had to share a box of chocolates.
vs Yateley 4s - 13 Jan 2018
Home Score: 1 - Opposition Score: 2
Match Result: Loss
With Haslemere Ladies 4's being top of the league for the first time this season we wanted to keep our position near the top. This was going to be a tough game this week for us, playing against Yately, who have been top of the table for most of the season.
We needed a strong team, but due to lots of injuries with 4 of our core players we had a slightly different team, with a few new players, so the pressure was on.
Haslemere put Yateley under pressure right from the start, but it was a pretty even match. We had most of the possession throughout the whole game and managed to get it into their D a lot, but struggled to score.
As we had a lot of defenders this week, we put Sally Hendry, one of our usual defenders, up front and within 10 minutes of her coming on she scored her first goal for the club from a strong pass from Ness.
After 5 minutes in the second half Yateley equalised. The pressure was on for us to win this game if we wanted to stay top of the league, so we fought as hard as we could. We managed to get quite a few shots on goal and 3 short corners but just couldn't score.
With 2 minutes to go it was still 1-1, which was pretty good against a good team and we were OK with this. Then their centre forward made a break and striked it at our goal. She kicked it out, it deflected off one of our players then our goalie kicked it into our goal just before the whistle went. How deflated we all felt after such a good match to lose at the last minute. Every player had a great game and never gave up including our new recruits.
Man of match: Heide Evans
